Current non-executive chairman Phillip Jackson has resigned from the board.

Advancing towards next milestones
Managing director Paul Roberts said: “Attracting directors of the calibre of Francis and Andrew is a testament to the high quality of our Bankan Project.
“On behalf of the board, I warmly welcome Mr Harper and Mr Pardey to Predictive.
“I look forward to working closely with them both and the invaluable insights they can offer as we take the company forward through its next major milestones.
“I would like to make special mention and thanks to outgoing chairman Phillip Jackson for his many years of service to Predictive.
“Phillip has provided much valuable counsel and support on Predictive’s journey to the current exciting stage in the company’s development, for which the Predictive team is very grateful.”
Commenting on his appointment, Harper said: “It’s an exciting time to be joining the company and I welcome the ppportunity to contribute and assist the company in its rapid progress towards its inaugural resource statement and achieving further significant milestones.”
Earlier in his career, he held senior management roles at the Anglogold-Ashanti Siguiri Mine and Nordgold Lefa Mine, both of which are within Guinea’s Siguiri Basin, which also hosts Predictive’s Bankan Project.
Pardey said: “The Bankan Project is a rare opportunity, with two high potential discoveries which are consistently producing strong drill intercepts and can be progressed through development studies, while also having over 350 square kilometres of contiguous permits along the granite margins for further exploration.”
